Downloads

GRANITE 9 OS v.2.01 (6.33 MB) 04-05-2021

This OS should only be updated via direct connection with the GRANITE 9. 

This download is for the GRANITE 9 datalogger. Execution of this download places the Operating System file(.obj) on your computer. It also updates the CRBasic Editor compiler and support files. 

Note/Warning: Campbell Scientific always recommends updating operating systems on site if possible. When remote updates are required, it is recommended that you implement the necessary precautions to handle unexpected OS upload complications. All datalogger settings should be retained when updated remotely. If you choose to roll back to a previous operating system, the datalogger settings will be reset to default.
